Get Slimed! Worry-Free Slime Recipe from Elmer’s

Worry-Free Slime Recipe from Elmer’s

My daughter has a SLIME addiction, I swear! Every day she is making a new batch.  She plays with her slime almost every hour she is at home.  The first thing she does after giving me my morning hug is checked on her slime.  She will open almost of her containers then will decide what color to make for the day.  She tells me that SLIME MAKING is fun and stress reliever.  Well if it’s a stress reliever maybe more adults need to get into the CRAZE. 

Every time we go to TARGET or the grocery store we need to check the GLUE aisle.  Most of the time the shelves are empty, and then we have to stalk the store until they re-stock Elmer’s Glue. She also pointed out to me that I can buy Elmer’s on Amazon (GALLON)  so that way it will save us time and money, her words! 

The other day we walked into TARGET and saw this beautiful display

So of course, she got me, and I ended up buying her a couple of weeks (haha) worth of glue and solution.

As a parent, I want to encourage her in projects she likes, but I’m not a fan of BORAX so when we found this recipe I was super excited.

  • 1 TBSP of Contact Solution
  • 4 fl oz Elmer’s White school glue

  2. Pour out the entire contents of a 4oz of Elmer’s school glue into the bowl.

My daughter made the rainbow colored slime by separating 5 sections of the above recipe and put them into different containers then added the food coloring to each container.  Then kneaded each one then put them all together into one container.
